For a couple of slightly overweight seniors, the seat on the Hooligan looks bigger than the seat on the Buddy we currently own. The Buddy is a bit crowded....I weigh 210 and wife weighs 130(??).

Any comments on the "comfort" of two riders on the Hooligan.

The Hooligan's dual rear shocks, bigger wheels and tires and longer wheelbase should definitely help.

My wife and I have ridden together on the Hooligan and find it more comfortable than the Buddy - the extra power helps as well.

The extra length I can see but doesn't the Hooligan 170i and Buddy 170i share the same engine?

Different engine - longer case (12" wheels), more power but with lighter rollers (11g.), same top speed. No oil filter, but oil cooler in front cover.
